Going on a first date. My friend says a girl must always have her nails polished. Is this true? Mine are long and natural (no tips) and not polished. Should I clip and or paint them? I like them long and they are shaped well...
Lol @ girls saying shape them and buff them and apply a clear/sheer polish. If you're going to do all of that you might as well do a color. Anyway, guys say they don't care or notice but I think they do notice it on a subconscious level. Guys love when girls beautify themselves. I'm not saying they dislike tom-boy low maintenance girls but usually prefer girlie girls. So polishing your nails wouldn't hurt.
I'm a very observant guy. I notice a girl's hair, clothes shoes, makeup etc. I can honestly say that even though it's always nice when a girl has nail polish it doesn't bring much to the date other than 'that's a nice colour'. It's harder to discuss nail colour than her hair, clothes, makeup - those things you could talk about endlessly with different topics. I wouldn't be at all turned off if a girl didn't paint her nails for a date.
It's always good to pay attention to little details like painting your nails on a first date. Some guys notice everything, and if you have a good manicure they may think that you are tidy and take care of your appearance. It isn't a must, but it certainly doesn't hurt.
